If you’re experiencing heavy oral bleeding that isn’t subsiding with pressure or a possibly broken jaw, please go straight to your nearest emergency room. After your initial care, our team can offer you quality reconstructive and cosmetic solutions to rebuild your smile as needed.
There are some simple precautions patients of all ages can take to keep their smile safer over time. Always rely on scissors and not your teeth to open tricky packaging. Wear a mouthguard when playing your favorite sport, and avoid chewing on hard candy, popcorn kernels, and ice when necessary to avoid damage. Above all else, make sure to attend routine appointments with our staff! We can catch and treat dental problems before they ever get the chance to develop into emergencies.
